The Daily News Collection

A daily news is a newspaper published each day that covers current events and other topics of interest to the general public. It can include information about politics, sports, and entertainment. It can also include editorial pieces that offer different viewpoints on a particular topic. A daily newspaper can be read online or on paper.

Founded in 1919 by Joseph Medill Patterson, the New York Daily News was one of the first successful tabloid newspapers in the United States. It attracted readers with sensational pictorial coverage of crime and scandal, lurid photographs, and cartoons and other entertainment features. The paper became especially popular in the 1920s, when it focused on political wrongdoing like the Teapot Dome Scandal and social intrigue such as the romance between Wallis Simpson and King Edward VIII that made for front-page headlines.

In 1949, the News established radio and television broadcasting operations, including WPIX-TV (channel 11 in New York City). The TV station remains located in the former Daily News Building. In 1988, the News faced financial difficulties when its ten unions—which represented most of its editorial and production staff—declined to negotiate with the Tribune Company for wage increases or other concessions. The strike lasted almost three months, and while readership recovered after the News resumed publication, it had dropped below two million.

The Daily News was sold in 1992 to Rupert Murdoch’s News Corporation, which had recently acquired the rival New York Post. It continued to grow and by 1995 it was the largest newspaper in the country with a circulation of over five million. However, as digital media and other factors eroded print readership, the Daily News struggled to maintain its circulation and in 2017 was sold to Tronc for $1.

Each article in this collection includes “Comprehension and Critical Thinking Questions” and “Resources” (including video clips, maps, and links) to help students better understand the story. Also, each article is formatted for easy reading and contains embedded links to articles on the same topic from other sites, so that students can explore more perspectives on the same event or issue.

Yale Daily News is the nation’s oldest college newspaper and is editorially independent of the university. It serves Yale and the surrounding communities of New Haven, Connecticut, and publishes Monday through Friday during the academic year. In addition to the daily newspaper, the News produces several special issues each year, such as the Yale-Harvard Game Day Issue and the Commencement Issue. It also operates a news website and a student newsletter.
